The resorts do not have the best beaches or often times, the best views. Most importantly, the resorts are over-priced and try to control every aspect of your wedding while charging you for every detail as well. So that may explain why people don't get married there as often or choose to have separate venues for the wedding and reception. If you want to have your wedding and reception at the same place I would suggest looking at The St. Peter Mountain GreatHouse or Villa Botanica. Both beautiful establishments with great food. The Great House has a amazing view of Magen's and a botanical gardens on property that your guests get to see free of charge. I have also heard great things about Villa Botanica. Beautiful property and excellent food.
The Wyndham, the Marriott, the Ritz and Bolongo Bay offer all inclusive options, i.e. room and meals. These hotels would also be happy to host your wedding and reception there. However, be prepared to have to constantly remind the hotels whose wedding it is, demand what you want, and be prepared to pay the over-priced rate for mediocre quality. There are pros and cons, and i'm not trying to bad mouth the hotels. After doing my research on every possible venue, I did not feel that the hotels were the best option or value.
Hope this helps.
